New Delhi, Aug 25: The second term fast protest initiated by Anna Hazare has been so far called as another freedom struggle for India. On Thursday, Aug 25, when Team Anna gave a clarion call to the people of the nation, recalling freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose (Netaji's) popular words - "Delhi Chalo", the country indeed has been confronted with a battle to uproot corruption.

Citing the latest call of Team Anna, it seems that 74-year-old Gandhian crusader is suddenly mulling towards the path shown by Subhash Chandra Bose who hardly believed in the Mahatma Gandhi's non-violent protest.

Observing the government's sluggish movement over the Lokpal Bill row, Arvind Kejriwal - Anna's close aide said, "By Saturday, if there is no solution, we will appeal to the people for 'Dilli chalo'. People should come in large numbers and sit here till the government finds solution to the issue, if it doesn't introduce the 'Jan Lokpal bill' in Parliament they should not leave till it is resolved."

Despite verbal assurance from the government, Team Anna emphasised on written agreement from Manmohan Singh's government over the disputed anti-corruption bill.

"The government should give in writing their intentions and what they want. We will deliberate on their written statement and respond to it once consensus is reached among us. Then we will go for talks," Kejriwal added.

Meanwhile, the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Vilasrao Deshmukh met Anna at Ramlila Maidan and carried his (Anna's) response to the Prime Minister.

The crusader, whose indefinite fast completed 10th day on Thursday, is expected to discuss his (Anna's) intention and plan publicly once the PM replies to Anna's answer.
